BirdSong Facebook Analytics reports and data can be used to help you optimise your Facebook social strategy in many ways.

Here are some examples of how our customers are already using this data:

  • Analyze any brand or public fan page in detail
  • Identify the key elements that impact the Facebook engagement rate for that page and for those of their competitors
  • Discover the best performing posts for likes, comments, and shares
  • To identify what their competitors are posting about and when they are active
  • To uncover the best time to post for engagement based on historic post performance
  • To discover more about a competitor’s follower demographic and what percentage of their fans are actually engaging with the fan page
  • Filter posts by date range and by engagements for a comparative Facebook analysis
  • To benchmark their own and competitors engagement rates against the category averages

What data is available in the download?

For any fan page, you can download data for all posts. For privacy reasons, Facebook does not allow us to access or download fan profiles. If you need user data try exporting Twitter followers or recently engaged Instagram users.

Here is the data you can download from any Facebook page:

  • Post ID (created by Facebook)
  • Time & date of post (UTC)
  • Post type e.g. photo/video/status/link.
  • Content analysis (text supplied in post)
  • Link to the fan page post
  • All available posts from the page
  • Recent Primary Comments

Downloading Facebook Comments

Due to Facebook restrictions, our standard reports do not include all post comments, instead we provide the latest primary comments.

  • Latest Comments – the most recent comments for posts at the time of your report.
  • Primary Comments – comments relating to the original post. We do not index the comments on comments or threaded discussions.

Our bespoke team can help you index more comments for selected posts or date ranges. Exporting all comments primary will take longer and cost more than standard Analytics reports. Please use Live Chat or leave us a message to understand more about indexing Facebook comments, the opportunities and the limitations.

Do you provide Fan downloads?

Not at this time. Unlike Twitter, Facebook does not provide a simple list of Fan Page followers. We can analyse the engaged fans (anyone who has liked, commented or shared a post.) We will include this data in a future update.

What does BirdSong Analytics offer the social media practitioner over and above Facebook’s own analytics?

You will be able to access useful Facebook data about pages you manage through Facebook’s own analytics tool. For example, you will be able to look at:

  • Likes
  • Reach
  • Page views
  • Actions on page
  • Posts & types of post
  • Fans

However, Facebook Analytics does not give you this information for accounts that you don’t manage or have not been given access to. This is where BirdSong Analytics can help. With our social media tool, you can buy reports to look at the Facebook data for other pages and see how they are using the platform. This allows you to research the Facebook statistics for clients, competitors and other public accounts that you are interested in. With our Facebook Data Reports, you will also be able to:

  • Download all the posts and post data for these accounts
  • Benchmark their fan numbers and engagement rates against other pages in the same category to see if they are under or out-performing their rivals

Bespoke reports

We also offer a bespoke reports service alongside our Facebook Reports where our in-house development team can create and build custom analysis reports for you using our data. This includes:

  • Leaderboards to track ongoing performance of 10+ chosen Facebook pages
  • Automated monthly updates. We can set up a monthly (or weekly) report for you on any number of pages that you want to track regularly
  • Fan enhancement. We can help you understand more about your audience by matching them to their accounts on other social channels

Our research team

If you would like to use BirdSong Analytics for a research project but don’t have time to run the reports and do the analysis, our research team can help.

They regularly work with clients (large and small) to provide answers to questions that they have about how sectors and competitors are using Twitter.

If you have a project that you would like to discuss with our research team, why not get in touch.
